Why did I get error KB5008876?

However, if you’re technically savvy, you can try the steps below:
1. Once you have clicked on Start, you should start typing “services.msc” on your keyboard.
2. “Services.msc” should appear in the search results when you enter “services.msc”. You can open it by clicking on it.
3. You will see a new window that contains a list of all the Windows services that are running on your computer.
4. In the search box, type in “Windows Update”
5. Right-click the “Windows Update” and then click Stop.
We will now clean the Windows Update temporary cache folder:
1. Hold down the windows key and hit the R key at the same time.
2. A new window will appear.
3. In this new window, type %windir%/SoftwareDistribution/DataStore and click OK.
4. By doing this, Windows Explorer will open at the correct location.
5. All contents of this folder should be deleted. You can select all files and folders by pressing Ctrl + A.

The Windows Update Service will now be restarted:
1. Go back to the Windows Services.
2. Find Windows Update.
3. Choose Start from the right-click menu.
If the problem still persists, you can run the System File Checker (SFC) utility. This handy in-built tool will check your filesystem. 
1. As soon as you click Start, you will be prompted to start typing the word “cmd” on your keyboard.
2. In your search results, cmd should appear with a black icon next to it.
3. Right-click the file and select Run as administrator from the menu that appears.
4. As soon as you are prompted for the administrator’s password, enter it and click the OK button.
5. In the next few seconds, a completely black window will open up. In this window, you will be able to type commands directly into it.
6. Press the Enter key and type sfc/scannow into the command line.
7. It will take a long time for this process to be completed. If you would like to work on this black window, you can minimize it and work on it.
After a time, come back to the black window and check if the process has been completed.
As soon as the SFC process has completed, restart your computer as soon as possible. You will have to search for Updates again after restarting your computer.
